We stayed for one night before flying from Stansted. The overall charge for B&B and a fortnight's car parking plus taxi to and from airport was extremely competitive. Our host, Ian, was very friendly and helpful and all the arrangements went like clockwork. Our room was very nice, clean and with a good bathroom. Good choices for breakfast. There is... More

We stayed here for the night before our holiday. It is fine for a one night stay before your flight,in a good location near a little town with a few pubs. It was very clean and did the job. What i did not like about this place is the fact that on the web site you see lovely pictures of... More

Pictures of both our Classic and our Deluxe rooms are available to view on our website, with descriptions alongside individual rooms. Guests pay a cheaper rate for Classic rooms to reflect the difference. Our Deluxe rooms were recently refurbished and we plan to do the same for our Classics as we agree they are in need of modernisation. This project... More

We stayed here the night before our flight from Stansted, and left the car here for the week. Greeted on arrival and assisted with cases to room after a smooth check in. We had one of the deluxe rooms upstairs and had a very good nights sleep. Room clean and fresh, beds comfy, and shower room also very clean, and... More

Together with my wife and two daughters of 16 and 19 years old, we stayed at the Harwood House B&B for 3 nights. From here we were able to easily drive for sightseeing to London, Cambridge, Duxford Imperial War Museum, Windsor Castle and Henley. Helen en Ian are the best hosts we’ve ever had ! On arrival we were friendly... More

We stayed here for five nights over two trips and thoroughly enjoyed both of them.Good service,food and and an excellent large room to facilitate all our cases! Location excellent for Stansted and the local Tesco and Indian Restaurant all contributed to an enjoyable experience. When visiting UK again would return here

Where do we begin? Everything about our 5-night stay was superb. Ian went out of his way to provide support for our long, business-related stay in town including use of the washing machine which is certainly not the norm nor expected. The shuttle service was a real bonus, something we didn't realize was available and which turned out to be... More

My niece and I spent a fantastic weekend at the lovely Harwood House. Helen and Ian (owners) helped make my first time in England the best. After an extremely comfortable nights sleep, Ian made a delicious homemade breakfast each morning. The bedroom, breakfast room, and gorgeous gardens were so beautiful I posted pictures on my facebook to make all my... More

Excellent for early flight from Stansted, sadly far too early for breakfast. But great curry across the road in pub the night before. Very efficient service to and from airport, would stay again and recommend to family and friends

Graham and I have now stayed at Harwood House on 4 separate occasions which I guess speaks for itself. If you're flying from Stanstead, I really can't recommend this place more highly. We always book the deal whereby we stay overnight before our flight and leave our car with the owners whilst we are away. We then get taken to... More

Lovely stay - good room with comfy bed. Wifi is free which is what you would expect and no password which makes life easy. My only one criticism would be the bathroom. I felt it was not up to scratch with the rest of the B&B. It was a little dated, the shower cubicle was very small and the shower... More
